Turn insights into actions: CIRMA Risk Management Data & Analytics
We share data through comprehensive analytical systems, reports, file reviews, important loss trends, and detailed claim management insights to help you see the big picture and put the right strategies in place to manage the cost of insurance losses, big and small. We know what’s happening, what might happen, and how you can manage both the expected and the unexpected. For example, CIRMA’s stewardship reports help you:
- Analyze past and current loss trends
- Unveil the cause and cost drivers of losses by accident, injury, and department
- Review and assess the efficacy of existing risk management initiatives
- Identify and develop risk management action plans and initiatives to prevent accidents
- Establish benchmarks for sustained success
And those strategies we just mentioned? We help you develop, implement, and monitor them, too.
CIRMA’s analytical systems provide our members a far richer, more detailed, yet easy-to-understand view of their operations and exposures. In addition, CIRMA’s sophisticated analytical systems provide real-time tracking, analysis, and reporting capabilities for our members, enabling them to monitor, measure, and thereby better manage risk.

Tools that help schools save energy and money
On average, schools spend more to heat, cool, and light their buildings than the cost of textbooks, supplies, and computers combined.

Our partner, Hartford Steam Boiler (HSB) offers CIRMA members a selection of comprehensive Equipment Operation and Efficiency resources including cost-saving energy efficiency tips for space heating, lighting, water heating, space cooling, ventilation, cooking, refrigeration, and electrical.
